COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farmhouse Ales were brewed for the diligent farmhands who drew the short straw and had to work the arduous harvest. Our brewmaster’s expression blends the spiciness of a Farmhouse Ale with the tartness of a Flanders Red for a remarkably refreshing finish. Malts: Caramel Malt Pale Malt, European Abbey Malt, European Acidulated Malt, Chocolate Malt, Malted White Wheat Hops: Spalt Select, Czech Saaz Our Twist: White Pepper, Coriander, Hibiscus

Formerly know as "Farmhouse Red Ale"

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is fruit, malt, chocolate, spice. All mild tho. Med body, or nearly. Somehow the mix of flavors isn’t working right. Reminding me of an age old candy bar I didn’t really like very much. Never stopped me then, but it might now. There’s fruit and pepper and chocolate in the finish. Some citrus, I guess. But comparing this to a Flanders Red? Well maybe it is a bit tart. Still.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a hazy orangish red appearance with little head. Buttery, tangy red fruity, herbal aroma. Lots of green apple and butter in the flavor with some other light fruity elements to help a bit. All over the place and not very good.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a large creamy off-white head. Average head retention. Aroma of really nothing at all. Faint tart berries. The taste is tart berries and a bit of spice. Thin and slightly watery. Meh.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep coppery brown with 1-finger tan head. Nose is earthy and brown sugary, with notes of toffee and hops. Tastes hoppy, floral, earthy, with some fruity tartness at mid-palate. Not much funk, but this one is not bad.

Bottle. Metallic malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet tart cherry/hibisucus malt flavor. Decent body. Okay - decent for a Blue Moon beer.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Thanks to Blake and Jenny for the bottle! Poured clear, lighter orange with a short, tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up artificial strawberry essence along with notes of pale malt, dry honey, and caramel.. a little additional spice too.. not terribly interesting, but it was aiight. The flavor found wheat and biscuity malts at the core, with strawberry seeds, tart wheat, and a kiss of lemongrass around.. finished very dry with berry tartness and toasted wheat. Lighter-bodied with moderate carbonation.. sharper than it needed to be at times, but a decent flow overall.

Supposed to be "sour" My Ass! this one is pretty insipid, light spiciness but not much else.
